Coshocton Regional Medical Center Excells in Pneumonia, Respiratory Failure and Sepsis Outcomes According to Healthgrades

Coshocton Regional Medical Center is 5-star rated for Pneumonia, Respiratory Failure and Sepsis outcomes according to a national report released by Healthgrades, the leading online resource for information about physicians and hospitals. This achievement is part of the Healthgrades 2020 Report to the Nation, which underscores the importance of hospital quality to both consumers and hospital leaders. Every year, Healthgrades evaluates hospital performance at nearly 4,500 hospitals nationwide for 32 of the most common inpatient procedures and conditions using Medicare data, and additional analysis outcomes in appendectomy and bariatric surgery using all-payer data provided by 15 states.

Variation in care has a significant impact on health outcomes. From 2016-2018, if all hospitals as a group performed similarly to hospitals receiving 5-stars, on average, 220,019 lives could potentially have been saved and 149,403 complications could potentially have been avoided.* A 5-star rating indicates that Coshocton Regional Medical Center’s clinical outcomes are statistically significantly better than expected when treating the conditions or performing the procedure being evaluated.

“Consumers have many choices when it comes to choosing a hospital where to receive care and the choice can be a matter of life and death,” said Brad Bowman, MD, Chief Medical Officer at Healthgrades. “The hospitals that have been recognized as 5-star rated for specific procedures and conditions stand out above the rest for the ongoing dedication and commitment to providing exceptional care to their patients.”

“Coshocton Regional Medical Center has worked tirelessly to set the highest standard for patient care. The receipt of these awards is proof of that commitment and hard work,” said Stephanie Conn, CEO. “I am very proud of our organization.”

Coshocton Regional Medical Center was also recognized for the following clinical achievements:

  • Named Among the Top 10% in the Nation for Overall Pulmonary Services in 2020
  • Recipient of the Healthgrades 2020 Pulmonary Care Excellence Award
  • Five-Star Recipient for the Treatment of Respiratory Failure and Sepsis in 2019

For its analysis, Healthgrades evaluated approximately 45 million Medicare inpatient records for nearly 4,500 short-term acute care hospitals nationwide to assess hospital performance in 32 common conditions and procedures, and evaluated outcomes in appendectomy and bariatric surgery using all-payer data provided by 15 states. Healthgrades recognizes a hospital’s quality achievements for cohort-specific performance, specialty area performance, and overall clinical quality. Individual procedure or condition cohorts are designated as 5-star (statistically significantly better than expected), 3-star (not statistically different from expected) and 1-star (statistically significantly worse than expected) categories.
